"your" area? YOUR area? Do you own the neighborhood? Are the streets private? Do people who don't live in "your" area have to get someone's permission to walk down "your" street? And are the cops supposed to drop everything and come running every time someone who doesn't live in "your" neighborhood happens to pass through? Seriously?

I know lets see if you can walk in a urban area if that area is black.

If you are white, and not a crack head looking for drugs how long you think it will be before you are stopped by the police or a group of thugs ?

How long would it be if you where black walking in a white area would it be before just the police show up, as I have not seen any white thugs walking in white areas, I would bet that in a white area that person would be asked if they needed help first too.

If that black person did not answer back or respond to, well yes can you help me, then I am sure the police would be called.

If you had to ask for help in a black area and you where white no help would come and you would get your butt kicked, you don't think so go walk in the crossing or better yet go to New Orleans and walk in the 9th ward or the Fisher and see how far you get before you end up dead, or even go walk down into the villa De Ames apartment complex and see how far you get.

Your Damn right!! I own the area I live in, and if you don't belong in my area then get out, Or Buy a house or land in my area but if You are in an area that you don't belong to why are you here, and what is your intention of being in my area?
This Zimmerman Guy was A Neighborhood watch and his job althought it was a personal chose he was out there doing what others wanted him to do in the neighborhood.
This kid attacked him the law covers the use of deadly force, it was voted into law by the people of that area, he did just want the law side he could do.
If he was attacked even after he followed then who elses would this kid would have attacked if it was not Zimmerman, maybe a woman who was just out on the street walking in her area where she lived knowing that there was a guy out there who was watching out for her to make sure that who ever came into the area they were not allowed to just walk around without being ask why!!
Your damn right If I was placed in the same spot I would have done the same thing, If under the law that kid attacked me while I was doing a job of a neighborhood watchman and he attacked me your damn right I would put a damn bullet in his butt.
Lets hope you never have to protect your self when the bad guys walk in your house because the way you sound your going to be dead!
I'll give you some credit in that the kid was inside a gated community that he did not live in. I do not know the bylaws of this community, but I do know most gated communities in Florida are maintained by public dollars. So for the most part they are not private communities, but there are a few in FL that are.

However, you cannot claim it is an act of self defense when you chase someone down. That is ridiculous. And as long as Zimmerman can stereotype (and you agreed) what would the response be by a normal person when a hispanic man is stalking and chasing after you? If you are unarmed I'm willing to bet you aren't going to stand your ground.

Self defense can only be claimed when you are left with no other option. He had plenty of options, like wait for the police, or stop pursuing him, or stay far away until he actually harms someone.

I have walked in urban areas where I am the minority many times. I am as white as they come. Yes, there are areas where if someone walks through a neighborhood they may get injured or killed for doing absolutely nothing other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. That doesn't give me the right to chase a black (or other minority) person when they are in a white neighborhood because he looks "suspicious".

What if the KKK put a bounty on the "minorities" that beat that elderly white couple in Oklahoma awhile back? What card would be pulled? Oh but the black panther party...a homeland terrorist group just like the KKK...can put a "bounty" on someone for what they see as an injustice and get away with it with the liberal media playing this crap up? Unacceptable!
I weighed 125 pounds in the 11th grade and sent a few larger fellas to the ground with wounds for them to lick. Size dont mean a damn thing.
The [new] black panther's of today are not the same as they were back in the 50's and 60's when they were fighting for civil rights. If you asked prominent black activists they would say they do not condone the bounty they have placed on Zimmerman. I haven't heard anyone media outlet say they applaud the black panthers for placing this bounty either.

It's great you could lay someone out. How many of those times did you provoke those people or were they provoking you? And how many of those were complete strangers?

I agree with you sniper..be white and walk down havana street after dark. The gated community isnt the "gated community" owned by public dollars eithers. Thats called "projects." Those houses in the videos being shown on tv where this young man was killed are not "projects."

It that a bet? If you know what could happen why would you do it?

And no, I'm not referring to projects. I'm referring to a community that is maintained by public dollars (roads, water/sewer, schools, etc). It occurs all over Florida. As someone who received a degree in Urban Planning from Florida State University and working for the Dept. of Community Affairs throughout my time there I'm willing to bet I have a little bit more knowledge of Florida communities than you. I don't know the community where the killing took place so I don't know laws- and I have tried to find out the name of the community but haven't had any luck. Seeing as you know this community isn't receiving public dollars can you tell me the name of it? I would be grateful of knowing it.

My whole point is that it has become a race issue. Wouldnt surprise me if Barry staged this to reunite the blacks that strayed from his political goatscrew. Just an idea but man it sure does fit like a glove (unless the gloves belonged on OJ). KNowing that dirty bastard killed that white girl.
So it did happen in the projects! Unsure of the name, i am sure the media dont wanna flood that dump with news truck and there be a showing like what was broadcast like after the Ferriday drug bust. God knows we dont want or need that.

What would have happened if the KKK would have thrown together a posse after nicole brown simpson was found murdered? We didnt know all the facts then and the liberal media isnt giving us all of the facts now on this case. That kid was 17 years old and not 14 like the pictures of a CHILD are showing him as. You people need to find more info instead of the information on the one channel that you watch. Crazy how they say a gated community on CNN but gated houing develpoment on FOX. His pictures show a 14ish year old boy but his actual age was 17 yoa. He supposedly was just walking down the street on CNN but on FOX the witness said he was standing under someones stoop where he was not supposed to be.
If I pulled up to my house and someone was under my neighbors porch and i didnt recognize them I would confront them for sure. You people need to wake up.

News Flash!!! Heard this on the TV news. That 'poor black kid' was witnessed as being on top of Zimmerman and beating him on and about the face and head. Also released was a report of the kid being arested for drugs recently. An examination of Zimmerman had shown he had a broken nose and head lacerations. So, who is the bad guy now??
Maybe this is about race, maybe not. I do not know and I am not sure I want to find out. What I am sure about is that Al, Jessie, Spike and the New Panther movement need to KEEP OUT OF IT!!! All these people do is foment unrest and racial tension. Remember the Jena six? Al, Jessie and Martin Jr stuck their noses in that mess, fomented unrest and than left when the real story of what happened broke.
Last but not least: Does anyone on here remember the Black Panther party or the SLA?? Violence was there aim. Violence against anyone that was not black. The New Black Panther party should not be involved in this at all. The end result is a price on Zimmermans head!!!! If anything untword happens to Zimmerman, than all who put up money for his capture or in the case of Spike Lee put his address on Twitter is equally responsible under the law. Stupid, stupid people like Al, Jessie and Spike need to keep their mouth shut about this incident!
What is a fact is Zimmerman called the police about Treyvon and was "advised" he didn't need to do that, but he still did. To me whatever happened at that point is irrelevant unless it involves Zimmerman getting attacked on the way out of potential trouble. Zimmerman was looking for trouble, plain and simple. If he saw the kid doing something illegal- not suspicious- it would have been reported in the 911 call. As it stands he got involved in this because he wanted to. If Zimmerman never approached the kid none of this would have happened, and that is a fact.

I am not convinced this is the result of a racial hate crime. I am leaning towards it being a dude who thought he was trying to be a "hero" and things started to go badly for him.

Maybe the black panthers will "mobilize" a few more and go Afghanistan to find the filthy bastard that executed a US soldier fighting for their sorry asses. Oh he wasnt black. Maybe we should go back though the photo albums and pull up the photos of black AMERICANS (not african americans) that have been overseas fighting to keep war out of the United States and were killed protecting their sorry asses and maybe that will motiviate them. I figure not.

so where is havemercy and his two cents ?

Or all the others who stand behind Barry, why is there not an out cry about the bounty that a black group put on another man.

Who is all about the hate now, you left can have your cake, and I guess you'll eat it too.

When Fl blows up do you think that it will not light the fires in other citys around the country, if you don't have a gun now you may think about getting one.

Sounds like what the FBI put out in a report years ago, in what it would take to spark a civil war in this country.

Thanks to the four dumb men, Al, Jessie,Spike,and Farrakhan they will make this a war of race!

This kid has been dead for 1 month, when are his autopsy results going to be made public? Did he have alcohol or drugs in his system, were their signs of foul play etc?

I bet the autopsy won't be released unless a trial is set up- that or it will be made available long after people stop caring and a new story is the hot topic.

As far as whether or not he was using drugs and alcohol, that is irrelevant. Zimmerman should not have confronted the kid. A responsible adult calls the police and lets them deal with disorderly people. If Zimmerman thought (or knew) the kid was on a controlled substance he knew full in well this could result in a conflict.

I am amazed at how many people are applauding or condoning the lack of judgement that Zimmerman used and acting like it is okay to do this. Unless you are in a police uniform you do not have the right to approach someone who you think is suspicious and then claim killing was an act of self defense. You know outright that approaching a suspicious person could end in conflict.

If Zimmerman was an on duty police officer and approached Treyvon and everything else happened the way it is being reported I would be saying Treyvon was in the wrong, 100%.

I also think that the family trying to make a slogan off this incident is absolutely ridiculous. Making money off of a loved ones death is completely immoral to me. If you want to stand up for what you think is right I support you, but once you cross that line of merchandizing and branding a bad situation you lose some of my compassion.

I'm with you on the whole "my area" thing. When people come around my parts it's either because they belong there, ie.they know me or my neighbors, they're lost or they don't belong here. You can bet your sweet butt I'm gonna eyeball you until I figure out why you're here. I'm not gonna chase someone down but you can tell when someone is where they don't have any business being. I am gonna protect my family and my property, and my neighbors for that matter. Out of all of us old foagies that live out here I'm more able to do certain things and if that means I gotta stop and ask someone what they are doing on my road- I will.

How many people live in "your area"? Maybe if you live in a rural area you can grow up with this attitude. Think about this, Sanford FL has a population density of 2669 people per square mile. Do you really think that Zimmerman knew everyone in "his" community? Do you think you could identify everyone in an urban community? To put that in perspective Vernon Parish has a population density of 37 people per sq. mile. My point is, you cannot tell who belongs and who doesn't in an urban environment.

And you're right, if you have to stop and ask someone if they are lost, you can do that, but I don't think chasing them down to inquire about their whereabouts is the same thing.
